Good news, and we can surely use it!
Here is a sign Congress, including a great many Democrats, realize what a big mistake Obama is making in his treatment of Israel. This is the first concerted break I have noticed between Obama and elected Democrats.
The Jerusalem Post reports:
Meanwhile, in Washington, 337 congressmen – three-quarters of the House of Representatives – signed a bipartisan letter to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressing solid support for Israel and the expectation that differences between Jerusalem and Washington will be smoothed over quickly and in private.
“We are writing to reaffirm our commitment to the unbreakable bond that exists between our country and the State of Israel and to express to you our deep concern over recent tension,” the letter read. “A strong Israel is an asset to the national security of the United States and brings stability to the Middle East.
Obama is a master at subtle insults, inside insults. Some months ago he was photographed with the bottom of his shoes to the camera as he spoke with Netanyahu on the phone. The average American would think little of it, but in the Mid-East it is a show of utter contempt. Congress be praised for clarifying to Israel that the rift is with Obama, not with the United States.
